Canoe and kayak in Southern Norway

Few activities allow you to get closer to nature than what paddling does. Explore the skerries along the southern coast or relax in a calm inland lake

The coastline of Southern Norway is perfect for paddling. Find yourself a small island, explore the many lighthouses, and enjoy warm days at sea.

Paddling the coastline of Southern Norway

The islands, islets and skerries are like a protective belt along the coast. You can paddle in all kinds of weather, well protected from wind and waves. Find your own spot, put up a tent and enjoy lazy days in the archipelago - in kayak.

If you've never tried kayaking before, there are many companies along the Southern Norwegian coast who offer lessons and guided paddling tours, with top instructors.

Try going from lighthouse-to-lighthouse with a kayak with experienced guides.
